Here is Seen On? of the Most Magnifl cent Pleasures Ways in the World. Revival of rumors that Jay Gonld has S ircbased the palace of Chapnlcipec exico, for a residence, comes at a tim when it is known that the nature of hi chronic malady—exhaustion of the nerv ons system—demands an even and mil climate and pure air, together with free dom from contact with irritating cares and surroundings calculated to give de light to the miud a well as rest to th body. When it was first reported mor than a year ago that Mr. Gould was nego Mating with tee Mexican government fo Chapultepec, little credit tvas paid t what seemed senseless gossip. The Mexi cans, like all the mixed races of the cont: nent, cling with curious pride to thei strangely contradictory traditions. Tba a tree marks a fatal catastrophe in the: national history does' not make it les estimable in ..their eyes, provided th catastrophe were sublime. That-a palac cnntsins the cave in which a Monkzum hid for a time before capture ended ignominious death, it became still late official residence and imperial court of th Austrain invader and has since served i country house of the president of the r< pulic, might seem to render its wal grotesquely curious more than sncred t national worship. But they hold the hi of Chapultepec alone the less dear becaus its steep sides witnessed the victory of th North American soldiers over the braves of their commanders; and on one side declivity they have inscrioed in momi mental form the names of all who fell tliat .gallant fight for Mexico or wer captured by the victors. For thes reasons, and still more practically becaus a wing has been added that serves ?.s th national military school, it seemed in credible that Mexico would consent part with this palace of Chapultepes an more than we with the White House c any of the national buildings afc ance usi ful and nationalized otherwise by trad tion. But if sentimental in so many re?pecl the Mexican of our time is also praciiu-t Ten millions of people with seven gre; languages; the mass of those outside th large towns still in paganism as well as i absolute illiteracy; its sea trade hampere except in one region, by lack of harbors and its internal growth delayed by scant industry on which to lay taxes, while mat ufactures, that might flourish throughou the fertile table lands fail of. growth fo want of water and of transportation—"th government of Diaz, who is a practica man, will take money wherever it is to b had; and if Jay Gould is ready to pa 87,000,000 for the palace of Cflaputepe he will undoubtedly get it. President Dia would not undertake to consummate th transaction without the concurrence o congress. To do so would indeed b usurping authority he does not posses The constitution of Mexico is largely rnoc. eled on our own end the powers of the ex ecutive are strictly defined. But tho ac ministration of Diaz is known to cantrc easily a majority of the two houses congress and if he has resolved on securin this vast sum for national purposes, Ja Gould will become owner and occupier o one of the most beautiful structures in th world, set like a jewel on the summit of hill that commands a landscape unsur passed in loveliness in any quarter of th globe. Of late years enormous impressions con cerning Mexico have been yielding to cor rective reports of fair-minded travelers The border ruffian or the lazy peon of th southwgstern frontitt have too long sup plied American imagination with a pure! fanciful type of Mexican. That there ar in Mexico schools older than any in th northern half of the continent, that it great cities are adorned with beautifu buildings, enriched with fine churches, en livened by brilliant and cultivated society and humanized by many institutions tha care for each class of afflicted humanity would seem a few jeara ago romancing jut it is all true. There is scarcely an idet jurtd in escaping, one of whom died soon familiar to advancing civilization 1 thatha' after. .

The sub ordinate type, hereditary legatee of sloth patience, gentleness, simplicity, indiffer eiico ia another. They may have the re lative ratio of one to a thousand. The modern Mexico, not altogether free from fantastic suggestion of lingering barbaric splendor and savagery, ia alwayj to be seen framed like aline fancy portrait amit a group of natural creatures, all but nude copper-colored; as liable, ono would think, to fall on their knees and worship firo oj sun or reptile or cactus, as tneir paean ancestors of how many thousands of years ago? Tho modern type is accustomed to all the elegancies, all the delicacies, all the subtiltiOB of civilisation. The ancient at his feet situ in the market place and poand.s corn, as did the natives, that stared at the ripuniarda nearly four hundred yours ago.

Nowhere more gayly than in Mex- Will he read? It has anoent libraries and modern book-stajjs. In fact, all thatis ancient, all that is modern, all that is western, all that is eastern, all that is pagan, a little that is Christian, all that is polished, far more that is primitive but not rough, all tbat is charming to the senses and much that is revolting to the soul, is in Mexico to a degree nowhere else in the world. Those who have never been in lands where mountains are higher than clouds, who have never watched for hours through instantly changing veils of vapor beginning with the deep rose of tropical sunrise and extending into the clear high gold of meridian a comulus, now seeming clone!, now teeming peak, have no conception of the sybilline nature of the atmosphere or the weird fascination of altitude and distance. Far above the ordinary level of men's habitation atmospheric effects are rapically unlike (those lower down. Doubtless science would account for this difference easily enough; poetry prefers to leave science out and deal with the air and its ceremonials purely in Hellenic mood. The cloud effects of mountain neighborhoods have been from the beginning of time the marvel, the delieht, the defiance of men. At certain points in the Alps one sees within a few minutes' change of focus nearly every imaginable aspect of nature—the pleasant dales, the little white-winged vessels on the mountain lakes 8,000 feet beneath, the dim towers of hamlets, the winding ribbon of silver streams. In another direction there is storm and stress, furious winds are out from a!J the caves, thunder growls and lightenings leap from crag to crag. Elsewhere clear skies smile on deep tranquility, and suddenly as from nowhere the beholder of these marvels of God's pastimes finds his own face wet with cloud, his nearest companion invisible, his feet nailed to the soil lest a single step should find unsuspected verge of gorge; and in another instant the majestic flood of sunlight again envelops the mountain, and the snows, that have not melted no one knows for how long on the distant dazzling terraces, blind the astonished eyes with heavenly radiance. But that is Switzerland. The two great sentinels of the valley of Mexico, when the writer hereof saw them, were in early "spring majesty, how many miles away no one knew. Whether the mass of fleece were cloud or cap no one dared assert. As the train kept its steadfast way up tho gradients they seemed nearer, nearer, nearer, soon to be unveiled, soon to be hailed with open salutation of homage: but farther, farther, farther they grew as we grew nearer. Now they swept as if angrily out of vision, and the sky was overborne with gray, lavender, silver and opal. Now the sunlight rested on their cones like gold on a bishop's mitre. Now the clouds wheeled swiftly about like squadrons drilling and manuevering. Now mighty winds clutched cloud masses and threw them about in caprice or fury. Still ever they went farther away, ever retiring, hiding, eluding the eye, escaping from the heavens utterly. All phenomenon Ruskin notes in the myth of Athena of the air wero visible, inglorious but elusive processions. What Aztec deities may not have fought upon their metal sides. What fables of prehistoric ages must have been drawn from their tremend- e6us frowns, their demon like furtiveness; colossal humors. Why, in such presence, should not a man as before the Himalayas and the Caucasus fall upon his knees and worship fire as the god of gods, firo that is in the sun, in the moon, in the stars, in the lightnings, in the clouds, and fire that from time to time belched forth from these uplifted hells) of snow and poured down death from a hundred living rivera on villages that awoke only to die? At last; as if a Toltec Jove with electric finger drew back the curtains, the mighty pair sat before us, opal azure of tht Mexican sky investing their eternal calmness, the noonday &un glittering on their snows, all other elemental forces invisible, silent, in presence of iheir majesty. Every day during the dry season in Mexico* Jay Gould can see these visions The two great peaks are his nearest neigh- bow. The Palaco.ot" Chapultepec stands on a ro'jk that is master of hundreds of miles on mountain, valley, and plain. It is solidly built of stone, its architecture jharacterisfio only of the country, neither [toman ror Gothic, neither Greek nor Moorish, square, massive, spacious. So mild is the air that the covered promenades are frescoed in modern Italian taste. The rooms are large and during the occupancy of Maximilian and Garlotta were all refurnished with the newest upholstery and carved lisrht woods of Paris. The 'urnilure would have been equally at homo n the Tullories. Every foot of the adjacent grounds is historic. On no other part of the American continent can he read and eel BO much in so short a time.
